Episode 331: Erectile dysfunction – a hard look at the evidence

In episode 331, James and Mike talk about the ups and downs of erectile dysfunction. We take a penetrating look at the epidemiology and what initial assessments should be done – treatments will pop-up in the next podcast. Fortunately or unfortunately, we rarely raise our comments above what would be expected from 14 year-old boys.

Episode 330: PREMIUM – Diabetes, all the good, the bad and the ugly

In episode 330, Mike and James do a PREMIUM job of looking at 2 important new publications about medications for type 2 diabetes. We look at an RCT of semaglutide that actually shows a benefit. We then look at a very thorough systematic review/meta-analysis of all the studies and publications around T2DM since 1998. The results demonstrate very clearly that the evidence doesn’t really support what is being written in the diabetes clinical practice guidelines.
